Rugged Ridge Exhaust Spacer Kit for 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 Jeep JK Wranglers with a 3.6L V6 Engine.

This Exhaust Spacer Kit from Rugged Ridge helps move your 2012-2018 Jeep JK Wrangler's Y-pipe further back to increase the amount of front suspension travel from 2-1/2" to over 5-1/2" to save the driveshaft from wear and tear. If your JK has 2-1/2" or more of lift then your Jeep's front driveshaft is liable to make contact with the exhaust Y-pipe. This could melt the CV boot and cause the driveshaft to fail prematurely. This easy-to-install kit solves that problem!

- Made out of high-grade steel
- No permanent modification to your JK's exhaust

Jeep moved the exhaust forward on the 2012 Wrangler. This can cause issues on some lifted JKs. Rugged Ridge's Exhaust Spacer Kit for the 3.6L Wrangler moves the Y-pipe back. The spacers install on the flanges between the front headers and the Y-pipe. This kit comes with all the necessary hardware for installation and doesn't require you to make any permanent modifications to your JK's exhaust.
